Darian Stewart will get credit for the takeaway, but the credit truly deserves to go to Malik Jackson, who planted Tom Brady into the dirt as he was releasing the ball. Stewart read the pass perfectly, jumped the route and came away with the interception.


Denver may only have two sacks on the day, but they’ve been getting to Brady consistently. More importantly, they’ve been getting to Brady with just three and four pass rushers.

As the New York Giants proved back in both their Super Bowl victories over Brady and the Patriots, that’s the best way to stunt the New England offense.

Thanks to a sack and another Demaryius Thomas dropped pass, though, Denver wasn’t able to capitalize on the turnover.
